Inequalities in sexual health, reproductive health and HIV remain a major public health issue in England. To support the potential for the voluntary non-profit sectors to develop effective ways to address these inequalities in key populations, we are pleased to be running Public Health England’s Reproductive Health, Sexual Health and HIV Innovation Fund 2020-21.
The Innovation Fund aims to maximise the potential in the voluntary sector to develop innovative ways of addressing poor sexual and/or reproductive health and HIV in those communities most affected. While open to projects across sexual health, reproductive health and HIV, this year the fund looks to particularly support projects that focus specifically on Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities.
Proposals will be accepted from voluntary sector organisations to deliver projects of up to 12 months in duration of a cost of between £25,000 and £75,000.
Sexual Health, Reproductive Health and HIV Innovation Fund webinar
A webinar was held on Wednesday 2 September to provide an introduction to the Innovation Fund and give guidance on the application process.
A recording of the webinar can be accessed here (please start at 5 minutes in), which includes the Q&A at the end.
